At a Glance...
When a woman starts walking the motherhood path, she finds
herself on a double track: On the one hand what she offers to the new human
being she is to call her baby is invaluable to last and shape the future of the
Humanity. On the other hand what she also remains to discover is that she is
going to evolve in a non-return way. Far beyond the pink fantasies she might
host in her imagination, motherhood is a sacred journey along Evolution. All
who dare to walk it get transformed in an irrevocable way.

Although the lectures are designed to be self-contained,
students wanting to expand their knowledge even further will be guided to do so
through extensive bibliography. Students are advised to read the required

one. Recommended and supplemental readings can be read any time throughout the
course in the self-study context and this is what will take your understanding
to new heights.
There will be video lectures (60-75 minutes each) each week.
The lectures can be divided into segments, separated by interactive quiz
questions for you to help you process and understand material. In addition,
there will be a case set and a programming assignment each week and there will
be a final exam paper. You are encouraged to maintain a personal journal of
thoughts, observations and experiences during the course. What we advise you is
to always reflect and ask yourself "how can this knowledge help me evolve?
How can I make use of it to support the evolution of others?"
